Our goal is to provide our listeners with the facts. Our podcasts avoid pushing a political agenda. We believe people are tired of being told what and how to think about a to ...

There will always be something distinct about our present day, yet history haunts. American democracy is at a crossroads and we have to decide who we really are as a nation. This moment begs us all to look to our past to help understand our present and to imagine a better future. In the aftermath of the carnage of the Civil War, the nation struggled to give shape to a country drenched in blood. In many ways, we are still fighting old battles and still trapped in assumptions that blocked the ...

Why did Japan attack the US at Pearl Harbor? It’s important to first consider the history between Japan and the US. Political relations between the two countries have a complicated past.

Mines! Torpedoes! Improvised Explosive Devices at sea! When the War of 1812 broke out there was no way that the United States could sustainably go toe-to-toe with the far larger royal Navy, and so Congress authorized “An Act to encourage the destruction of the armed vessels of war of the enemy.” The Torpedo Act promised one-half the value of any sh…

Although the majority of white Southerners were staunchly opposed to racial integration during the 1950 & 60s, there were a few mavericks who held a different point of view.

Why are we giving money and weapons to Ukraine?
